Photography is all about the light, and the best light is arguably during the golden hour, when the sun is low on the horizon just after sunrise, and just before sunset.
So for this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge I went through my archives and picked out some of my favorites where ordinary trees are marvelous soaked in gold,
Yellowstone comes alive in the early morning light,
and Astoria glows just before sunset.
Very beautiful golden hour colors!
Thank you! These are the ones I remembered most from my archives! 🙂
I use archived photos on the blog fairly frequently, great photos, Susanne. ❤️
Why not? 😊 Thanks so much!

Wonderful gallery of golden hour light, Susanne! Astoria looks so beautiful bathed in the sunrise glow! Of course Yellowstone is amazing.
Thanks so much, Terri. These are some of my favorites – at least that I can remember! Thanks for the inspiration to let them see the light of day! 😊
Beautiful shots, especially the ones of Yellowstone!
Thanks so much! 😊 I happened to wake early that morning, where we were staying at Old Faithful, and the light was just right!
The early photographer catches the light 😃
Exactly! I’m not normally an early riser but do my best when traveling!
You chose a great selection. It really is all about the light! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks so much, Pete! 😊😊
Beautiful photos all – I love how the moon seems to dangle form the last thin branch on that tree!
Thanks so much John! 😊
I have never seen Astoria look so lovely. Well done.
Thanks so much! I took that from the deck of the cruise ship before we departed. Astoria is a stop for cruises down the west coast.
I forgot that Astoria had come up in the tourist world!
We’ve been there so many times before, but still found it a fun stop when arriving by cruise ship!
Like a new town.
Excellent photos! I do agree that the “golden hour” does turn the ordinary to the extraordinary!
Thanks so much! The golden hour truly is the magic hour!
Beautiful photos from last week…
Thank you so much. 😊😊
These are extraordinary, I love how you captured the perfect golden light. What talent! 💕C
Thank you so much for your lovely comment!! An encouraging start to my day!! 🙂 🙂
